Learn how to prune your apple trees

Fruit tree pruning demonstration

If you have fruit trees and need advice on looking after them, local expert Philip Gamble will be giving a practical explanation of ‘How to prune and care for fruit trees’ on Sunday 15th March from 10.30 – 12.30.

An outstanding horticulturalist with a wide variety of experience as a head gardener, lecturer, garden designer, horticultural writer and photographer, Philip now runs his own advisory business aptly called ‘Garden Reassurance’.

He will demonstrate pruning techniques and talk about suitable tree-care while tending to community trees planted some years ago by Turn Lyme Green in Anning Road and at Slopes Farm.

There is no charge for his demonstration, which is sponsored by Turn Lyme Green.

Because numbers are limited to fifteen, those who would like to attend this event are asked to register their interest in advance with Polly Benfield (01297 446066) if possible before Saturday. The first fifteen applicants will then be sent confirmation with details of where to meet.
